Students in Kindergarten to Grade 9 often require help with their English studies. As students continue to learn, private English tutoring helps them to ensure they are on the right path. Often the transition from Elementary to Junior High can show where student have been experiencing incremental challenges. It is best to ensure in earlier grades that students are understanding their English studies before it becomes overly problematic.

Private English tutoring gives the student the opportunity to learn at their own pace and ask questions specific to them. Their tutor will be able to provide the student with individual attention and focus. Therefore, the student will strengthen their knowledge and understanding and specific help to areas that need improvement.

We Create Customized English Learning Plans

For any student to improve their reading and comprehension, they need to participate in learning that is individually tailored to their grade, skill level and learning pace. We create customized tutor-led learning sessions that are a combination of reading and comprehension, vocabulary building, spelling and pronunciation. All new students are given a Student Evaluation to complete. This will help us to determine where we need to focus according to their grade and skill level. See below to arrange.

After we review the Student Evaluation, we will contact you, the parent/guardian to advise what we believe is the best approach to help your child. We may also wish to view some of the homework that your child has difficulty with.
